Archie Bell

Genre:Classic R&B / FunkDemo:50 +

Archie Bell

Archie Bell & the Drells scored a left-field number one hit in 1968 with "Tighten Up," which epitomized the virtues of their music: funky, exuberant, danceable soul out for a rousing good time. Born in Henderson, TX, Bell grew up in Houston and began singing in church. In junior high, he joined a vocal group called Little Pop & the Fireballs, and formed the Drells in high school with friends James Wise, Huey "Billy" Butler, and Joe...

Aretha Franklin

Genre:Classic R&B / FunkPrice:Under $200,000Demo:35-50,50 +

Aretha Franklin

Aretha Franklin's early influences in music began while still a little girl, singing at a Detroit church, where her father, Reverend C.L. Franklin, served as a minister. Aretha Franklin was only fourteen when she made her first gospel recordings. She eventually signed to Columbia Records, and would record on that label throughout the first half of the 1960's. She left Columbia for Atlantic a few years later, by the late 1960's, ...

Art Garfunkel

Genre:Classic RockPrice:Under $100,000Demo:50 +

Art Garfunkel

After Simon & Garfunkel, one of the most successful duos in pop history, split up in 1970, Art Garfunkel became a solo artist, as well as pursuing an acting career. Garfunkel's pure, high tenor had been one of the most distinctive elements of the duo's music, yet he wasn't responsible for the songwriting -- Simon wrote all of the group's hits. Not surprisingly, Garfunkel relied on other songwriters, from Jimmy Webb and Randy Newman to rock...

Barbra Streisand

Genre:Adult ContemporaryDemo:35-50

Barbra Streisand

Barbra Streisand's status as one of the most successful singers of her generation is all the more remarkable not only because her popularity has been achieved in the face of a dominant musical trend -- rock & roll -- which she did not follow; but also because, despite an amazing singing voice that has enthralled practically anyone who has heard it, she has always used singing as a mere stepping stone to other careers, as a stage and film actress and a...

Billy J. Kramer

Genre:50's & 60'sDemo:35-50,50 +

Billy J. Kramer

One of the most popular Merseybeat singers, Billy J. Kramer (born Billy Ashton) was one of the most mild-mannered rockers of the entire British Invasion. He wasn't that noteworthy a singer, either, and more likely than would have never been heard outside of northern England if he hadn't been fortunate enough to become a client of Beatles manager Brian Epstein. Even more crucially, he was gifted with several Lennon-McCartney songs in 1963 and 1964, sev...

Bob Dylan

Genre:Classic RockDemo:35-50,50 +

Bob Dylan

Bob Dylan is the most lauded and respected songwriter alive today and, perhaps, the most importance lyricist of the 20th and 21st centuries. Bob Dylan was born Robert Allen in 1941 in Duluth MN. In 1959, Zimmerman entered the University of Minnesota and began performing as Bob Dylan at clubs in Minneapolis and St. Paul. The following year Bob Dylan went to New York, performed in Greenwich Village folk clubs, and spent muc...

Bob Newhart

Bob Newhart's unique comedic style has crossed all generational lines through every medium of entertainment. Bob Newhart came into popularity from hitting the top of the record charts with his debut album in 1960 to lending his distinctive voice to a Disney animated film, to his three hit television series The Bob Newhart Show, Newhart and Bob, Bob Newhart is one of our country's finest comics. Bob Newhart seven comedy albums have sold more than 3 million copies. With his dry wit a...

Bobby Vee

Genre:50's & 60'sDemo:50 +

Bobby Vee

His career launched as a fill-in for the recently deceased Buddy Holly, Bobby Vee scored several pop hits during the early '60s, that notorious period of popular music sandwiched between the birth of rock & roll and the rise of the British Invasion. Though a few of his singles — "Rubber Ball," for one — were as innocuous as anything else from the era, Vee had a knack for infectious Brill Building pop, thanks to his ebullient voic...

Bobby Vinton

Genre:50's & 60'sDemo:50 +

Bobby Vinton

Every era needs its crooner, and in the early '60s, it was Bobby Vinton. Vinton's sentimental balladeering and orchestral, middle-of-the-road arrangements were a throwback to a decade earlier, before rock & roll had found its mass market. If Vinton is sometimes identified with a rock & roll audience, it's only because his music was bought by young listeners for a time, and because he still catches some airplay on oldies stations. What he s...

Brenda Holloway

Genre:Classic R&B / FunkDemo:35-50,50 +

Brenda Holloway

One of the sexiest singers on the Motown label, Brenda Holloway was also one of its grittiest, with a strong gospel influence more typical of Southern soul than the company's usual polish. Best known for her ballad hit "Every Little Bit Hurts," Holloway also recorded (and co-wrote) the original version of "You've Made Me So Very Happy," which soon became a hit for jazz-rockers Blood Sweat & Tears. Holloway wa...

Brenton Wood

Genre:Classic R&B / FunkDemo:35-50,50 +

Brenton Wood

Brenton Wood's charmingly unpredictable phrasing and his infectious sense of good times made the smooth uptown soul of "The Oogum Boogum Song" and "Gimme Little Sign" into hits in 1967. Despite his skill as a pop-soul vocalist, Wood was never able to match such heights again, yet those two songs became genuine R&B classics of their era. Born Alfred Jesse Smith in Shreveport, LA, Brenton Wood moved west to San Ped...

Brian Wilson

Brian Wilson

Brian Wilson is arguably the greatest American composer of popular music in the rock era. Born and raised in Hawthorne, CA, Wilson formed the Beach Boys , with his two younger brothers, cousin Mike Love, and school friend Alan Jardine, and they became the most successful American rock band in history by performing his songs, which initially combined the rock urgency of
